Saturday Miscellany – 10/10/15

Odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:

  • The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan — The start of a new series, with a new mythological pantheon. I think I’ve lost my Riordan beard to fiction for adults — I may have to admit that I buy these for me.
  • The Gap of Time by Jeanette Winterson — mentioned in the piece above this is (to quote her website), “Jeanette Winterson’s cover version of The Winter’s Tale“.
  • A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin — The Tales of Dunk and Egg should get me excited, but . . . I dunno. Having a hard time caring. Still figure I’m going to read this soon.
  • Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits by David Wong — this looks odd, potentially amusing, pretty exciting and good.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to Emmanuel Muema for following the blog this week.
